Most fleet members race the Division 11 circuit which includes locations such as Barnegat Bay, Rehobeth Bay, the Gunpowder River, and the Atlantic Ocean. Many fleets host a regatta each year, and our event is the Barnegat Breezer in Tom's River, NJ in late July or early August. The regatta consistently attracts well over 60 boats. All races are run under U.S.Y.R.U. Class Rules and there are different racing classes for each skill level.
If local, lake racing is your interest, Nockamixon Sail Club and Marsh Creek Sailing Club have both a Spring and Fall Series.
Share the wind with a group of people who enjoy a wide variety of activities with and without their Hobies.
We might take a day or a weekend trip to Barnegat Bay, the Jersey Shore, the Chesapeake Bay, Lake Nockamixon or Marsh Creek Pennsylvania State parks. Sometimes we'll leave the boats at home and have a pool party or a Hawaiian Luau. As winter approaches, we don't stop, we just switch gears! We have ski weekends, bowling outings, monthly meetings, and seminars on racing, or equipment and safety.
The members of the fleet determine the activities we pursue. We rely on involvement from our members. The more ideas we have from you, the better time we'll all have! Come join in the fun!
